Virginia Tech’s new employee learning platform launches with compliance training

From: Human Resources

The PageUp Learning Management System (LMS) will launch this fall for employees, laying the system-based foundation to support Virginia Tech’s culture of continuous learning.  

Integrated with the previously launched PageUp recruiting and onboarding portal, LMS will begin with the following new hire and compliance training courses such as: 

  • Compliance: Title IX/Policy 1025/VAWA: This course discusses the university’s anti-discrimination policies and applicable state and federal civil rights laws. Employees are encouraged to attend or review the new online training post-launch. This new training is expected to become available early October, while the old on-demand training modules will be phased out by Sept. 10, 2020. Until the launch of the new course in October, the Compliance Training is available through training.vt.edu as a live instructor-led webinar. Visit the Office for Equity and Accessibility’s website or contact Henry Yampolsky at hyampols@vt.edu for more information.
  • As of January 2020, the following two courses are required by the state for all employees. These two courses will be offered in the PageUp LMS at launch. Questions about the Commonwealth of Virginia’s safety training should be directed to Virginia Tech Emergency Management at oem@vt.edu or 540-231-4873.
    • State of Virginia: Civilian Response to Active Shooter: This course is designed to improve the safety and survivability of victims of active attack and mass shooting events through the introduction of the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy. Required at start of state service.
    • State of Virginia: Employee Safety and Disaster Awareness: This course is designed to improve employee preparedness for on the job safety and other potential hazards. Employees will watch Virginia Department of Emergency Management's General All-Hazards Emergency Preparedness training videos. Required annually.

While the PageUp LMS system will begin with employee-focused new hire and annual compliance training courses, the system project team will work with partners across campus to expand course options and training opportunities following launch. Over time, the LMS will include more learning activities such as interactive face-to-face training, recommended articles and readings, engaging webinars and videos, and on-the-job development activities.
